Matt Drudge is reporting that conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh has regained 80% of his hearing in one ear. Drudge quotes Limbaugh's brother David as saying that he was able to talk with Rush on the phone after his implant was activated earlier this week in Los Angeles.
Limbaugh, who lost all of his hearing last year, won't confirm the report, opting instead for a complete update on his progress when he returns to the air on Monday.
The Rush Limbaugh Show is heard weekday afternoons on 570 WSYR.
